“Amazing view of the city, wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We ate here over Carnival, with some wonderful friends, the service was outstanding, the owner was gracious and involved with the diners. Our food was prepared as requested, and the desserts we ordered were out of this world.

“Beautiful dining room, good food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

A little more expensive than some places but an elegant dinig room. We were there over Carnival, when eveything in town but hotel restaurants are closed. Every table was gringos, but then nothing else was open and the locals have all left town.

“Best Christmas Lunch EVER!”

Fantastic ambience; food amazing. Three course lunch $25 and good wine $20. Normal set lunch is $12 and well worth it. Best in Cuenca in my view
